Physical Activity

Physical activity gives us energy and increases the production of endorphins, which make us feel good. It also helps calm our brain and body when stressful things happen in our life.

It can be hard to find time in our busy lives to be physically active, but even walking around the block, taking the stairs, and stretching at your home or workplace can help.

Check out the Stress Buster strategies, and see which ones might work best for you and the people you care about.
